Friday’s First Warning Forecast: Holiday weekend heat
Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
A summer-like stretch of days… Get ready for a warm and muggy day. Highs will return to the upper 80s, 10+ degree above normal for this time of year. We will see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies today with a very slim rain chance. Winds will shift from west to north at 5 to 15 mph.
The holiday weekend will be nice but will feel like the unofficial start to summer. Saturday will be the coolest day of the next seven. Highs will dip to near 80, cooler but still above normal for this time of year. Temperatures will climb to the low 90s on Sunday. It will feel more like the mid 90s with the extra humidity. Heat and humidity will continue for Monday with highs in the upper 80s. An isolated shower/storm (20%) is possible Sunday and Monday with partly cloudy skies.
Highs will remain in the upper 80s to low 90s for most of next week.
